  • PM-345 Bioinformatics: From sequence to Function

    The ever increasing availability of genome sequences and protein structure data demands that molecular biologists are proficient at performing extensive data analyses to guide and support traditional laboratory-based research. This Module will provide the theoretical basis and practical training on computational tools currently used to assemble and interrogate genome sequences, infer gene and protein functions, and to examine protein structure data.

  • PM-357 Biomedical Laboratory Techniques

    The module will provide practical and in depth theory of applications and equipment available to MSci students in the biomedical research laboratories based at the Medical School. The module will provide guidelines and rationale for experimental design, and data and statistical analysis.
